Day 1 Starting Cinnamon

Hey Everybody I am new here! **History** I am 20 years old, I have suffered from bad skin since I was around 13 years old. I started accutane when I was 16 on a low dose which cleared me 100% but it returned about a year after. I have tried most treatments Vit A, E, C, B, Zinc, BP, SA etc. with no real improvement. I am a bodybuilder but i have NEVER used any steroids or testosterone boosters. I do not drink any milk or eat any wheat products, unfortunately being a bodybuilder mean I have to drink protein shakes as I cannot physically eat enough food (however I do not think It is related). Last year I did a bodybuilding competition and was told that cinnamon would help while cutting down, so i sprinkled it over my oatmeal 2x a day and within 2-3 weeks my skin was 100% clear (I did not know it was because of the cinnamon, i thought it was from eating less food). After my competition i went back to my normal diet (no cinnamon) and my skin broke out again. I stumbled across this thread and saw that people have had great results with cinnamon which reminded me of when I was taking it during competition prep. I decided to start sharing my experiences and give/receive advice from others. I started taking Zinc again last week 150mg a day, and started taking chromium 4 days ago 800ug a day. so far I havnt had any new break outs and my current acne is slowly clearing. I only started taking cinnamon today, since I used powder form before I will be using it again (1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 3x a day) If I do not see any results I will go get pill form as suggested. I will keep you guys updated with my progress.
